Summer is winding down and it’s time to get ready to go back to school. Whether you’ve been out of school for the summer or for many, many years (parents, we’re looking at you), you’ve definitely had these back to school moments.
1. The night-before butterflies.
You can’t get to sleep because it feels like there are hundreds of tiny butterflies in your stomach. Take a few deep breaths. You’ve got this, and everything is going to be fine.
2. Why did the alarm go off so early?
If you’ve been sleeping in all summer long, maybe you’ve even forgotten what morning looks like. Plus, with the tossing and turning you did last night, you’re feeling pretty slothful.
3. Picking out the perfect outfit…
You want to make a great first impression and a fashion statement.
4. And hoping your new haircut looks okay!
Don’t worry, it’s totally you!
5. The pure joy of having new school supplies.
You’ve got your backpack packed and you’re ready to go. Is there anything better than brand new notebooks, freshly sharpened pencils, and unused erasers?
6. Packing an extra special lunch.
Grab something delicious and nutritious (AKA brain food) so you have the energy you need to take on the day!
7. Seeing all your old friends again…
“It’s so good to see you! I missed you so much!”
Even if you just saw each other last week, it’s wonderful to see your friends at school.
8. And making new friends!
Say hi to the new kid! Or, if you’re new in school, try to meet people on the first day. The time is right to make new friends.
9. “What did you do this summer?”
Did you go on an awesome trip or pick up a cool new hobby over the summer? Whether you traveled the world or just learned how to skateboard, everyone will be asking what you did over the summer. You better have a good answer ready!
10. Oops, wrong classroom!
Well that was embarrassing! Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
11. Picking up your new text books.
Time to make book covers and customize them with your favorite markers and stickers. If you love your classes, you might even take a moment to peek ahead and see what the school year has in store for you.
12. Getting to know your new teachers.
Even on the first day, you can tell who your favorite teachers will be.
It’s always nice to have a break between classes to catch up with your friends and have a good time!
14. Getting back into extra curriculars.
15. Homework? On the first day of school?
“I’ll do it, but I won’t like it.”
16. Yawn, so sleepy now.
The first day can be exhausting! There’s lots of hustle and bustle, and rushing to get to classes, which can leave you feeling pretty worn out by the last bell.
17. But it’s also great to be back!
You’re all set to have a great year at school. You know you’ll have lots of fun and learn a lot too!
